Singularities of digital flexor tendons in the Catalan Pyrenean Horse
MetadataShow full item record
The gross anatomy of the digital flexors tendons and the distal accessory ligament of the Catalan Pyrenean Horse, an equine trait breed from Catalonia (NE Spain), is presented here. Research has been based on the dissection of isolated 10 right forelimbs, 10 left forelimbs, six right hindlimbs and five left hindlimbs (total 31 distal limbs) from clinically normal yearlings, about 12 months of age. Tendons dimensions tended to be bigger than those reported in the literature, probably due to breed, age, bodyweight, withers height and exercise programme. Distal accessory ligament was sometimes absent. Data intend to serve as standard manual data for this breed but also for other trait breeds, being the present study the first one on the subject.

Paired left-right asymmetries of the hoof surface in the Pyrenean Catalan yearlings are less marked among hindlimbs Parés Casanova, Pere-Miquel; López-Navarro, Noelia (Veterinary Academy, Lithuanian University of Health Sciences, 2020-12-24)Most published researches that describe an equine hoof form are based on lineal and angular measurements. Here we apply geometric morphometric methods to study symmetries between fore and hind pairs in a pure horse breed. ...
